Candidate Evaluation



When Donald Trump first started campaigning for President, we all laughed. My 7-year old brother even perfected a hilarious impersonation of the Donald based on Trump's many speeches about his beautiful border wall.

But now that Trump is the Republican nominee, we are more worried than amused. My little brother even asked my immigrant parents whether Trump would deport us to Mexico or Ireland! 

I am far too young to vote and am glad Paulina and I can go to Nevada and try to make a difference there. 

I am excited to help elect our country's first female president, Hillary Clinton. Paulina and I researched both candidates' positions on several issues we care about and it reinforced our commitment to help Clinton win. 


Here's what we found in our research:


1) Who is their running mate?
Trump                                        Clinton      
Mike Pence                                 Tim Kaine

2) What job did they have right before running in the elecion?

Trump                                        Clinton 
Founder of Trump Enterprise     Secretary of State
